Public Relations



ZEFR (Formerly Movieclips) is a software platform for brand and content management on YouTube.

BrandID, ZEFR’s brand management software, helps brands and media companies publish content, analyze their brand exposure, partner with their biggest fans, and target ads to their most important demographics. ZEFR helps their customers build lasting relationships with their fans on the second largest search engine in the world.

RightsID, ZEFR’s rights management software, monetizes the world’s content. Its proprietary licensing software took a historically antagonistic relationship between content rights holders (media companies) and fans that uploaded their content and turned it on its head. Now, instead of punishing fans for spreading their content, RightsID customers can take user uploaded content and manage it in their own content management system, creating a new stream of revenue and a rich source of data.
